Last Snow Melt

I live in Lansing, MI and I was wondering if you can tell me when the snow is forecasted to completely melt in this area.

Winter 2018

So far, it has been very cold and snowy in our area for the year. Below average temps, and a lot of storms.

This is ok though, and to be expected in my area. We are so far in the lead for the area's snow globe award with 105.4 inches of snow.
We are experiencing pretty warm temps right now (Mid February) and are hoping that the Groundhog was fibbing, and that winter is over.

So far spot on for this time of year, and I am hoping sport on for March as well because winter was very trying this year, thank the snow gods for snow tires!

Thanks

So far you have been spot on for my area and I appreciate your work.

SPOT ON forecasts!

Yeah! Thanks for letting us know. We hope you’re getting the weather you want!

Contradictory information

Your Annual weather summary November 2017 to October 2018 is contradictory to the November 2017 to October 2018 temperature / precipitation Graph/Chart. The summary says May 2018 is going to be warmer and drier than normal, the Graph/Chart says cooler and wetter than normal. How can I take stock in your forecast with information like that ?

how are the graphs calculated

The Editors's picture

The calculations for the graphs are based on the temp and precip forecasts and averages (see end of each month’s forecasts).
